What are your fallback meals?

What do you cook when you're too tired to be inventive? I'm presently eating mine- I had mixed beans cooking in my crockpot all day, planning on freezing some and maybe doing dip with the rest. When it got late and I was hungry I put half of them in a pot with some canned tomatoes, cumin, black pepper, and frozen cooked turkey, and I'm eating it with lots of bread. The beans/tomatoes/bread combination is the one I return to whenever I'm really tired, and even making pasta aglio/olio seems like too much work. It's a purely irrational thing- there are lots of other things as easy or easier to make, but my tired brain can cope better withthe inherent possibilities of a pot of beans than with anything else.
